3:59 am
[ male announcer ] taste it and describe the indescribable. could've had a v8. >> alisyn: good morning, everyone. today is tuesday, november 20. i'm alisyn camerota in for gretchen this morning. we begin with a fox news alert. the u.s. officially getting involved in the crisis in the middle east. secretary of state hillary clinton is on a plane at this hour headed to israel for talks. we're live with all the break details for you. >> brian: i hate those parent-teacher conferences. actually i kind of like them. one city making it easier. bribing parents can gift cards. is that a good message? i do like fridays. >> steve: we only have bennigan's. this beauty queen is headed to the miss america packagent. but she's preparing for surgery
4:00 am
that will change her looks. but will save her life. she joins us live this hour. "fox & friends" hour two for tuesday before thanksgiving starts right now. >> alisyn: good morning, everybody. thank you for joining us. it's a big news day as we follow what's happening in the middle east. things obviously are escalating there. you're looking live at the israeli-gaza border. the middle east crisis is now in day 7 and the u.s. is now today getting directly involved. secretary of state hillary clinton is in the air at this hour on her way to israel. she will meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu and egyptian and palestinian officials. >> brian: we have leeland vittert live, but first let's go to doug mckelway on the details of the secretary's latest mission. this will be a tough one, doug.
4:01 am
>> yeah. sure is. we have learned that secretary of state clinton just departed from the summit and headed to jerusalem to meet with prime minister netanyahu. then she'll move to ramallah to meet with palestinian officials and then to egypt to meet with morsi. all in an effort to ease the ongoing conflict between israel and palestinians in gaza. >> her visits will build on the engagement that we've undertaken overt last several days, including the engagement by president obama and secretary clinton with leaders in the region to support a deescalation in the violence and ends the rocket attacks and restores a broader calm in the region. >> deputy national security advisor ben rhodes said clinton will seek a, quote, deescalation of the clinton. he did not say cease fire. it may suggest the u.s. influence is limited there. further since the u.s. recognizes hamas as a provides
4:02 am
organization, terrorist organization, she's forbidden from meeting with them. some suggest that her meeting with morsi may be ineffectual since he's a member of the muslim brotherhood. this morning, morsi has been quite constructive in conversations that the u.s. had with them thus far. so we shall see. high stakes, brian. >> brian: absolutely. turkey playing a role, too. seems to be leaning more toward the hamas point of view. thanks a lot. >> steve: with israel now vowing to keep up its offensive in gaza, pictures like this, as long as militants continue to attack, leend la vittert is live at the israeli-gaza border with more. >> the attacks from both sides continue this morning and into the afternoon here. above my head i hear the sound of israeli drones and f-16s headed into the gaza strip on their bombing raids, then head how long from the gaza strip are
4:03 am
the mortars landing around us and then heading further out into southern israel. day 7 of the israeli bombing campaign on gaza. a number of sorties flown overnight and into today. they're starting to run out of main military targets to hit and now going after hamas infrastructure, things like the banks and other things there and also trying to take out a number of top islamic jihad and hamas leadership. so far, 110 people killed there, including a number of civilians and more than 1,000 wounded. on the israeli side, the hamas figured out how to get past the iron dome. by firing multiple rockets at once into one location. this morning that location was a large town in southern israel. a rocket hit a house that got through, destroyed the house and the rocket also hit a bus there. thankfully that bus was empty. as many of the buses around israel's southern part are because more than 1 million civilians live here. many of them have left town and headed north to be with friends. schools are closed.
4:04 am
many offices are closed around here as there is a possibility now of a ground offensive. all around location we're in, a mile or so from the gaza border, these fields are filled with platoons. we've seen the arrest tailry out here getting ready for a possible ground offensive. the thing that would possibly stop that are the cease fire talks going on inside cairo and obviously secretary of state hillary clinton's visit here over the next 24 to 36 hours may delay a ground invasion. the question is, is it enough to actually get a cease fire deal on the table and signed between hamas jihad, and israel here on the other side. guys? >> steve: a lot of moving parts. what do you know about apparently earlier today an employee at the u.s. embassy in tel aviv was apparently stabbed by somebody. what's up with that? >> exactly. what it appears to be is that a local jewish man here, an israeli was upset h a personal beef with someone who was a
4:05 am
local employee of the embassy and as though you would go to any workplace and try to take out your anger there at the person who happened to be working there, that's what happened. it seems unrelated to anything having to do with the united states. the embassy a coincidence that the man was so angry with was a guard there. thankfully fort guard, there were other people who subdued the attacker. but totally unrelated to things going on here or for that matter, the u.s. embassy. >> steve: got you. the guard was in the wrong place at the wrong time. leeland vittert, thank you very much for the update. >> alisyn: so let's talk about the significance of what's going on there. is this really just another sort of dustup between the gaza strip and israel or is there something larger and more significant going on? many international relations experts are saying what this really is is a dress rehearsal of sorts, that this is basically a proxy war actually between iran and israel and what israel is in part trying to do is
4:06 am
closure out its neighbor's cache of weapons before it may have to take some sort of action against iran if iran proceeds with its nuclear program. >> brian: it's accelerating despite what joe biden is telling you. they're worried that hezbollah will start bombing and hamas will start sending missiles misn from gaza and make the situation almost untenable should an attack happen. if you're going to take on iran, you're better off knowing where your ensmear and not have to look over your shoulder and down south. that's with ambassador talked about with greta van susteren yesterday. >> i don't think this is a question of hamas and israel. i think this is a question of iran and israel. particularly as hamas or somebody, maybe iranians in the gaza strip, are firing missiles that can hit tel aviv and jerusalem. this is iran showing that it can unleash both hamas and hezbollah
4:07 am
if need be in response. >> steve: to suggest it is perhaps a proxy war, take a look where do these missiles come from? they come from iran. so that's clear. there are 30,000 israeli reservists on the border with gaza. they are ready to go ahead and go in apparently, unless the air defenses of israel can take out all these missiles because the last thing they need are for these much longer rockets to be in the hands of those guys who will point them at tel aviv or jerusalem. >> brian: a lot of people say there are civilian casualties. what are they doing? well, they're on both sides. but when you shoot missiles from a busy urban center with children around and families around, there is going to be retaliation for those launch sites, which happen to be in the middle of dense populations in many case. so they're trying to go out of the way of civilian casualties.
4:08 am
>> alisyn: leeland's reports have given us a great first happened view of a missile coming right through the roof of a school house. the kids happened to be off that day because they were afraid that there was this rocket war going on of the but it came right through the roof and no children were killed. >> steve: iran denies providing the missiles, as you would expect. >> brian: that's good enough for me. >> alisyn: let's get to the rest of the headlines. they plan to bomb u.s. military bases overseas. the f.b.i. arrested four men from california. the alleged ring leader is a 34-year-old naturalized u.s. citizen who reportedly traveled to his native afghanistan in july for terrorist training. he also served in the u.s. air force from the year 2000 to 2001. it's believed that he introduced the others to the radical islamic doctrine of al-awlaki. he's the home grown terrorist who was killed in yemen by a u.s. drone. there is still some hope for hostess. a judge ordering the company and
4:09 am
its bakers union to agree to mediation today before liquidation. the ceo of hostess says any deal to keep company alive would have to be cost effective. >> we saw 2 1/2 billion dollars worth of these products. that's lot of twinkies, wonder bread and you name it. it's the cost structure. if you can't sell it to make a profit, then you're not in business. >> alisyn: you kind of need a profit. that much i've learned about business. 18,000 jobs are on the line there. hobby lobby lost its initial fight against obamacare. but fight is far from over. a judge rejected the company's request to block part of obamacare. that part requiring them to provide insurance for the morning after pill and for some forms of birth control. the owners of the company are christian and they say the mandate violates their religious beliefs. the owners do plan to appeal that ruling. there could be some big baby news out of london. >> steve: who are you calling a big baby? >> alisyn: i know you've been
4:10 am
monitoring this by the hour. kate middleton's former roommate said she plans to announce she's pregnant next month jessica hay, who attended the royal wedding, says the future king and queen are pretty far along in baby planning. they don't care whether they have boys or girls. they just want to be parents. >> brian: this according to the roommate, college roommate? >> alisyn: good enough for me. >> brian: okay. >> alisyn: i'm running with it, obviously. >> steve: let's talk a little bit about what's going on in chicago. the mayor out there is rahm emanuel. he's got a great idea on how to -- the graduation rate and the parent involvement in chicago public schools is terrible. so he's got a great idea. why don't we bribe the parents? if you show up and you pick up your child's grade card and you sit for the parent-teacher conference, you'll wind up with a loyalty card from walgreen's. 25 bucks worth. >> brian: that's incredible! is it the fact that they're not
4:11 am
flexible enough where the parents are working two jobs and can't get there in time, or they believe that parents are choosing not -- they have that little interest in their children that they need a briber to go? >> alisyn: it's hard to know what the motivation. but they do know for sure, for a fact that, many parents haven't shown up. these are not did she that's are -- these are troubled inner city public schools and the theory is if the parents were more involved, then the kids would do better and perform better at school. so if you can't get the parents to go of their own free will and just their own motivation, 25 bucks worth of free stuff. it's an experiment. they acknowledge that. they don't know if this is going to work, but they know they have to do something. >> steve: a number of times on this program and the channel we've talked about how there are problems with education and some of the problems were the teachers. look, if you can't get the parents of the children to show up to figure out how junior is doing in third grade or fifth
4:12 am
grade or 12th grade, that's not necessarily a problem with the kids or the school. at that time it's a problem with the parents. >> brian: do you think this is a good move? if the parents are the problem and you understand the parents are the problem, should you just analyze the problem and change it by taking action and giving them gift card? i could see giving your kid money for scoring a goal. >> steve: i have done that. >> alisyn: it's a different form of bribery. they're not going it to the kids. they're giving it to the parents. >> steve: here is the problem. this year it's 25 bucks. wall growns is donating it. the idea is -- here is 25 bucks, you'll see it's a good store, you'll shop here. but still, come on. >> alisyn: right. they're trying to change habits and patterns and they're hoping if they lure you into the school, that will also become a habit and parent. >> brian: you got to weigh in on twitter. i'm honoring with my new tweet deck, or write us. >> steve: we are going to bribe you because on the other side of
4:13 am
this rundown, you'll get so see stuart varney. he's going to talk about -- good morning. -- france, the country stripped of its triple a credit rating. so are we headedthere next? >> brian: if you watch stuart varney, we'll give you some type of gift card. >> alisyn: adding insult to injury, first sandy damaged their cars, now the city is towing them away without telling the owners. hi, i'm phil mickelson.
4:14 am
i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most.
4:15 am
ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. [ male announcer ] the rhythm of life. [ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that beat? campbell's healthy request soup lets you hear it... in your heart. [ basketball bouncing ] heart healthy. great taste. mmm... [ male announcer ] sounds good. it's amazing what soup can do. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify.
4:16 am
see what else mes standard at liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >> steve: moody's investor service has just stripped france of its triple a credit rating, downgrading it one notch to double a 1. >> brian: once again the european model not looking too strong. it will that rub off on us?
4:17 am
stuart varney is here. this is what the french deserve. a socialist going to put ultra70% of the taxes on everyone that's successful in that country and look what the credit rating is. >> that's fighting words there, brian. >> brian: am i 100% right? >> actually you are. the french have got far too much debt. there is no prospects for real economic growth in the future. they've taxed the rich to the hilt. 75%, so they're leaving. they have absolutely no plan to reform entitlements. in fact, they've just lowered the retirement age. does that ring a bell? look what they're doing. now look what we're doing here in america. we are going to tax the rich. we have slow growth next year. maybe even a recession. and we have absolutely no plan to rein in our entitlements inasmuch yeah. but they're actually talking about changing entitlements where it would be more costly for the government. we need to talk about doing something about entitlements. >> we're talking about a deal and the only deal i've heard is we're gog raise taxes on the
4:18 am
rich. not what we're going to cut. >> brian: democrats are wrestling with each other because they're starting to realize in reality that some entitlement reform has to be in the mix. >> if it's not, if we don't reform entitlements, that's what is busting the american bank. if we don't do this, then we will be faced with a downgrade next year. it's already been threatened. >> brian: the genius economist whose close confidante of the president wants to tax the rich 90%? >> he's saying if you go back to the good old days when we taxed the rich to the hilt, those were the good old days. those were the days of prosperity. he says we should return to those days. yet the union is involved in everything, raise wages, tax the rich to the hilt and prosperity will miraculously return. >> steve: and there are many who think 91 are right for a lot of people making a lot of money. watch this man in two hours. >> brian: he's the lead story. who is snoop dogg investing in?
4:19 am
what soccer team is he investing in? he will answer you at 9:20 eastern time. >> should i tell you now? >> brian: no. keep it for your show. >> steve: straight ahead, coming up, ever used yelp on-line it find the best restaurant and the best doctor? guess what, those reviews might have been paid for. >> brian: then rudy guiliani is standing by to tell us who he thinks took terror out of the benghazi talking points and he's excited because alisyn is talking to him. what will they be discussing? i'll tweet about it this family used capital one venture miles
4:20 am
to come home for the holidays. that's double miles you can actually use... sadly, their brother's white christmas just got "blacked out." [ brother ] but it's the family party! really jingles your bells, doesn't it? my gift to you! the capital one venture card! for any flight, any time! that's double miles

4:22 am
4:23 am
>> alisyn: time for news by the numbers. unfortunately, it's the layoff edition. 10%, that's how many jobs are being cut at ge health care because of the economy. the company has about 500 employees. next, 400. that's how many workers orlando health says it has to layoff because of obamacare. it's the largest staff reduction in the company's nearly 100-year history. and finally, 2. 2 more stimulus-backed solar companies laying off. they got a tax credit from the obama administration and have to lay off up to 37 people. sun tech received $2 million and has 50 potential layoffs. >> steve: too bad during the holidays. meanwhile, the violence in the middle east showing no signs of easing and now we're learning secretary of state hillary clinton is heading to israel. rudy guiliani just returned from europe. he was on a speaking tour there discussing that exact topic, the
4:24 am
mess in the middle east. and iran's role in it. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> steve: to the rescue. >> i guess she's going to try to get a cease fire, but this seems to me this is without doubt a proxy war. this is iran getting the palestinians to try to push the envelope as much as possible. israel trying to prepare itself for if they have to take action against iran to figure they get close in missiles out, whether their defense system works. seems to be work great, by the way. >> brian: 88% of all missiles. >> this a u.s. a system a lot of people bad mouthed. i was proud of reagan when he didn't give up nuclear defense. he turned out to be right. you can do it. now they have a more sophisticated system. that would be available if there were nuclear -- >> steve: reagan got the ball rolling. >> he did. thank god they have it.
4:25 am
300 shots. it's terrible that four people were lost. but remarkable. >> alisyn: we should air raid sirens have been sounding in jerusalem. again, you just returned from paris and you say much of the talk was about what's going on in the middle east. >> absolutely. the group i was with was john bolton and it was quite a group of the we were talking about the iranian group that wants to see regime change in iran. they've just been delisted. and the reality is that's an option that we should be talking about. there are three option. option number one is negotiate and do some kind of detante like question with the soviets. two, is military attacks. both of those are bad. the third is, let's see if you can get a different regime. after all, we have a different regime in egypt. we have a new one in libya. we're going to have a new one in syria. a lot of questions about what's going to replace them. in iran, you probably could
4:26 am
replace them with a pretty solid pro-western government if you did the right things. >> brian: kind of encouraged that president obama said he does have words of support for israel. >> they're getting bombed every day. and it turns out this has been going on for some time of the two, three a day now for almost a year. >> brian: what would the fallout be if they send 75,000-plus troops into gaza on the ground today, tomorrow, the next day? just in europe what, would the fallout be around the world? >> i think it would be an anti-israel attitude, unrealistic, and just the public relations thing that they've bottled and lost for a long time. is it a sound military move? maybe. maybe they have to do that if they want to make sure that they're not going to be vulnerable if they have to attack iran. >> steve: so our secretary of state, hillary clinton, is going to go after that. >> she's going to try to stop it. >> steve: let's talk about the woman who would like to be the
4:27 am
next secretary of state, susan rice. 100 members of congress, republicans all, have sent the president of the united states a letter saying susan rice pretty much disqualified herself because she appeared on the talk shows and said it was spontaneous and it was all about the video and we know that to have been absolutely not true. plus the intel was -- >> i have to tell you, i sat there in one of those sunday morning interviews. i was getting ready to go on of the i listened to her say that and i sat there looking at her. this is a couple days later. saying, what are you talking about? it was obvious from the very beginning that it was a terrorist attack. i didn't need the c.i.a. to tell me that. i just used my common sense to figure it out. rocket propelled hand grenade, mortars, happens on september 11. obviously a well executed plan. to buy that story, you got to be -- >> steve: but it was before the election. >> you're either incompetent if you buy that story or putting
4:28 am
out a political line at a time when people should be telling the truth. >> alisyn: the white house says it only changed one word in the talking points, changed it to be more technically katy from consulate to -- >> here is the issue, do we want a secretary of state that would buy that? do we want a secretary of state that actually believes that this was a spontaneous demonstration when there were hand propelled grenades, mortars, obviously planned in advance, well executed. >> alisyn: who do you think changed the talking points? >> i think we'll find that out over a period of a long, long time. you're also going to nominate somebody for secretary of state who is under investigation. >> brian: during the holidays people are really worried as they hand over their credit cards and go on-line to worry about their identity. you look up and you're buried in debt. do you have a way to stop that? >> i do. i advise lifelock. they're a client of my firm and we give them advice on security. there are a loft methods you can
4:29 am
use. lifelock is the best. but you got to find one of these services that protects you. this is the fastest growing form of crime. it's big during this period of time. and it's not just your credit card that gets stolen. it's your social security number that gets stolen. all of a sudden they can get into your medical records. they can get into your bank accounts and into your social security account if -- >> steve: they don't have to be on-line of the they just go into your mailbox and take an application. >> we've done work with lifelock and i know it's the best. but there are a couple of them available that are good and you should get one. just try one and you'll be a lot better off. >> steve: all right. lifelock. always a pleasure. thank you. >> have a great thanksgiving. >> brian: straight ahead, adding insult to injury, first sandy damaged their cars, now the city is towing them away without telling the owners. >> alisyn: how does a man who never liked football make it all the way into the hall of fame? former star is here with us
4:30 am

[ laughter ] >> brian: the doors are locked. >> steve: great. guess they got cable in there. >> brian: 26 minutes before the top of the hour. quick look at what is happening in the news. >> alisyn: you're looking at live pictures from jerusalem. moments ago, learned air raid sirens are wail not guilty the holy city. no explosions have been heard. we do not have any word on
4:35 am
possible injuries or casualties. this comes as the middle east crisis is now in its 7th day. secretary of state hillary clinton is enroute to israel to try to broker a deal to end the clashes between gaza militants and israel. >> steve: meanwhile, nearly 900 cars that were tossed in super storm sandy have been towed here in new york. get this, their owners got no notice. mayor bloomberg says license plates were recovered and people will be contacted. but owners have 30 days to claim their vehicles before they're junked. i wonder what's going to happen to them. i wonder if they'll get sold on the market. that would be bad if you bought a flood car. >> brian: if there is a fluke in your glove compartment, don't buy it. could daycare be making your children gain weight? study from the afterof montreal finds over a six-year period, kids left at daycare on a regular basis were 50% more likely to be overweight. researchers say it's not clear why and more studies on physical
4:36 am
activity and diet will need to be done. >> alisyn: a lot of people rely on yelp reviews. now there is word that some companies may have been paying for fake positive reviews. yes, brian, it's true. several reports are claiming as many as 30% of the on-line reviews are fake. >> steve: are you kidding me? >> alisyn: yelp says it's using a new filter to catch them. customer also see this alert latched onto any company link to do fake reviews. >> steve: that's too bad. i'm an old yelper. meanwhile, i love this story. grocery shops at a supermarket in north carolina hit the jackpot after the store's computer system crashed. the glitch caused customers to wait in long lines which prompted the store to give away their groceries. so they did close the store to any new customers while they worked on the problem, and reopened about an hour and a half later. but some people were in line
4:37 am
with 100 bucks worth of groceries, got them free from harris. mr. kilmeade, over to you. >> brian: for most people learning that you've been picked up by a professional football team would be a realization of a life long dream. but for hall of famer curtis martin, that wasn't exactly the case. >> my family and i were sitting around and we're watching the draft and the phone rings and it's bill parcells. i answer the phone. i say, hello. and he says, curtis, we want to know if you're interested in being a new england patriot. i said, well, yes. yes, sir. we hang up the phone. as soon as we hang up the phone, i turn around and everyone and say oh, my gosh. i do not want to play football. i knew that the only way i was going to be successful at this game called football was if i played for a purpose that was bigger than the game itself because i knew that the love for the game just wasn't in my heart. >> brian: how does a man who never liked football, hates to run, go down as one of the
4:38 am
greatest football players of his generation? let's ask him. curtis martin right here. welcome to the show. >> thank you. >> brian: it was just a short time ago you were wearing that gold jacket going to the hall of fame. >> yeah, it felt good. >> brian: did you learn to love the game as you went from the patriots to the jets? >> you know something? i learned to appreciate the game and i appreciate what the game did for me and i love that. and as time went on, i began to gain a love for it over time. >> brian: when you said play for people.pose, that purpose was? i really love impacting people's lives. i spent the rest of my life doing philanthropic ventures, charity. that's what i love to do. football has provided a stage for me to do that. >> alisyn: also melissa francis was on here, a child secretary of defense act throws went through brutal upbringing. you also went through brutal upbringing growing up. what you witnessed as a kid most kids don't come back from, the way your mother was treated by your father, what she witnessed.
4:39 am
why is it that you're able to sit there and smile and have that type of career and end up in the hall of fame? why were you able to overcome it? >> you know something, i believe that your life is built on what you can overcome. there are so many things that are going to happen. that's just life. but i think the way you respond to those things is what's going to determine your life. i'm glad i've been able to respond in a positive way versus a negative way. >> brian: you told me in the break that you're in great shape because you box 15 rounds, you let people hit you. you do not hit them back. listen, i want to talk to you about something else. you have figured out a way to take the kids of today have a passion for video games, football, everything. but you're partnered with a company that has people playing those games, but staying active. what are you talking about? >> exactly. one of the goals, thanksgiving is a time everyone is going to get fat. the statistics say one out of every three kids are overweight
4:40 am
or obese. and so i teamed up with ken kenddknect to have a 50 million challenge. we're trying to get 50 million kids to put in 60 minutes of active participation, whether that's through the knekt or something else a day. >> brian: the cool thing is you got to get up and do stuff. you have to move. >> what i really like is that when i was younger, i played the games and you just sit there for hours and hours and hours. but with knekt, you're constantly active and moving and getting your workout as you're having fun. i think that's what the appealing part is. >> brian: you play for the patriots and jets. they'll be playing each other on thanksgiving. prediction? >> i'm always going to go with the jets. i'll be a jet fan 'til the day i die. >> brian: good job. you left the patriots to go to the jets. good job. nice meeting you. congratulations on your career and success and hall of fame.

double mastectomy to avoid the risk of getting breast cancer in the future and she's joining us now to share more about her crucial decision. great to see you. >> great to see you. >> alisyn: i know you go by ali. tell us how you came to this major decision. >> my mother is diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 27. and my mom really told me this story of what it was like to really question what her future was going to be, whether she'd be able to run again. she was a marathon runner. whether she'd able to finish her degree. she was woring on her second masters degree. what man is ever going to love her with one breast? and she said to herself, i'm not going to give up and this cancer is not going to win and defeat me in my life. and just went on, pressed on, finished that degree in five months, not only competed, but won a mayor than in a year. five years later, she met my dad who promised her he was a leg guy and he didn't care one bit. so she just was such a story of resiliency. when i found out i was genetically predisposed to
4:48 am
cancer, having a mother diagnosed at a young age and passed away with it later in life, and i'm a genetic carrier which has been shown in recent studies to be a precursor for cancer and i said, i'm not willing to take the risk of leaving my children without a mother. >> alisyn: you're 24 years old. other young women have made that agonizing decision as well. but what makes your situation particularly unusual is that you're a contestant for miss america. how did that play into your decision? >> i knew that when i decided to get involved with the miss america program that we would have this incredible charitable platform where we could advocate a call that was important to us. that's something that the miss america program affords young women across this country. i thought what, a great platform to be able to speak about my mother, to have her legacy live on through me. if i can do something to prolong my life to be here for my husband some day, to be here for my children and able to speak to young women, encourage them and say, you can have this surgery.

5:02 am
>> alisyn: let me get to the headlines. you heard it here on "fox & friends." republican congressman colonel allen west conceding his bid for reelection to democrat patrick murphy. west says there are still serious questions about voting irregularities in the race, but he wants closure for the voters. west vows he will continue to serve the country that he loves so much. >> one of the things i've always felt is i've been serving this country my entire adult life and leaders don't need a title in order to continue to lead and also to be a voice and so i will continue to be a citizen servant of this great nation and do the things to help restore this constitutional republic. >> alisyn: west lost by .58%. .5% or less would have triggered an automatic recount. while they plan to bomb u.s. military bases overcease. overnight the f.b.i. arresting four men in california. the alleged ring leader, 34-year-old naturalized u.s. citizen who served in the u.s. air force from 2000 to 2001.
5:03 am
he reportedly traveled to his native afghanistan in july for terrorist training. it's believed he introduced the others to the radical islamic doctrine of al-awlaki. he was the home grown terrorist killed in yemen by a u.s. drone. the blast that leveled two homes in indianapolis leaving two people dead may have been murder? police initially thought the explosion was a horrible accident. but new details just reloosed last night suggest the natural gas explosion may have been intentional. there have been reports of a white van near the home the day of the explosion. police are not saying what the motive may have been or if there are any other suspects at this time. nascar has the first female pit member. christmas aindividual muscled her way into the tough position where you have to be extremely fast and efficient at changing tires and fueling race cars up

5:05 am
leaders and egypt's new muslim brotherhood government. her goal, to deescalate the fight not guilty gaza in a way that also ends the rocket attack noose israel. the fighting had been a distraction for president obama and secretary of state clinton for this entire three-nation trip. aides said he was on the phone with prime minister netanyahu and egyptian president morsi every night, every day, pardon me. and at the time stop here, there were several calls before the decision was made to send secretary of state clinton to the region. she will be joined there by u.n. secretary general for what will be a complex bit of diplomacy. the president's aide said mrs. clinton will not be going into gaza and not talking with hamas. >> can assure you she'll be meeting with the palestinian authority. the united states does not engage directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions
5:06 am
we set. >> president obama voiced his support for israel's right to defend itself at a news conference on this trip. but in his private diplomacy, he has been urging israel to hold off sending troops into gaza and hopes the rocket attacks can be stopped without an escalation of the battle and the much greater casualties that would bring. this is the first international test of egypt's new muslim brotherhood government and while u.s. officials will not compare it with egypt's former president, hosni mubarak, they do say that they are encouraged by the consultation and cooperation they've had from egypt's new leadership. guys, back to you. >> steve: wendell goler in cambodia. >> brian: i don't know what time it is with laura ingraham. >> steve: she's in our time zone. >> brian: it's my way of ad libbing. what time is it there, laura ingraham? >> i don't know. all the watches stopped on election day for me. [ laughter ] i don't know what time it is.
5:07 am
>> brian: it's actually 8:06, we believe. let's pretend it didn't stop. i was stunned to see turkey has their prime minister ally of ours go by the way, israel? a terrorist nation. it's new world, isn't it? >> you notice that the administration spokesman, our spokesman, he didn't want to say, well, we still brand hamas a terrorist organization. he said it quite diplomatically. well, they have not met the conditions to be engaged with or something like that. we label hamas a terrorist organization because this is what they do. and look, it's very complicated. wendell is right. but the fact of the matter is for those of us who have been in the southern city in israel that has been repeatedly hit over the years by these slightly more crude rockets, this has been an ongoing problem for israel. and now we have this corridor through which iran has
5:08 am
successfully sent these rockets that have a lot longer range and most have been shot down by the israeli dome of defense, and that's been great. someone said this yesterday, i guess the president said this yesterday: we would not tolerate this happening in our country. and israel should also not tolerate this. the muslim brotherhood? we'll see if they're going to be able to be honest brokers in any type of negotiation. i think any type of agreement for a cease fire is going to probably be brokered in egypt. it would have been clearer and more honest broker than morsi, but we'll see. >> steve: the arab spring has changed a lot of stuff there. what can hillary clinton possibly do until they run out of the rockets? >> well, so far it looks like from everything i'm seeing and everything i'm reading here from the best bloggers out this, it looks like israel is running out of targets to hit. hamas burries itself in this
5:09 am
tightly packed area in a civilian population. so there have been, unfortunately, civilian casualties. that's terrible for international appeals for people thinking israel is -- they've lost three people, but look at all these poor people in gaza. the fact is hillary clinton can't change that basic dynamic. that even if there is a cease fire, there are huge unresolved issues between gaza and israeli forces and israeli government. a cease fire is welcome. but there are a lot more issues still on the table. >> alisyn: let's talk about the position of secretary of state and hillary's possible replacement, the president, it was rumored was floated he wants susan rice. now 97 republican members of the house have sent a letter to the president saying that they would oppose her nomination because they basically don't have any faith or trust in her after what happened with benghazi. of course, that's largely symbolic. it's voted for in the senate.
5:10 am
what do you think is going to happen with her replacement? >> well, i've always had the sneaking suspicion that she would be offered up as national security advisor, which does not require senate confirmation. i think the president would like to have susan rice in as secretary of state. i think it's going to be increasingly difficult for him to do that. i think you'll see, if nancy pelosi's comments last week when she was asked about isn't it time for fresh leadership and she got all upset saying it was ageism. if that was the thing with nancy pelosi, i bet they're going to play this war on women thing. president obama saying you're going to have to come after me if you're trying to hold her out as some stalking horse on this. i think it will be hard for them to get her through. but i do think republicans better be prepared for what they're going to do with which this is unfair to the damsel in distress, she's just the sacrificial lamb.
5:11 am
>> brian: the president caused himself more grief with his explanation. why didn't you have her represent your administration on benghazi? >> the funny thing is, the white house sent her out, okay? well, why did you send her out? i say to all the feminists out there, why aren't you standing up and saying why did you use her? if that's what happened, you used her knowing that she would have perhaps plausible denyability. no feminist is talking about that. >> steve: we've been talking for a couple of days about this situation in santa monica, for 60 years, they've had these nativity scenes on the site of the pacific. now because last year so many atheists applied for the spots and they won 18 of the 21 spots and only two were going to be traditional nativity displays, the city decided to kick them out and now yesterday a judge by the name of audrey collins denied the request to put them
5:12 am
up while the case is pending. this is a troubling case. dollar lot of people who like to celebrate christmas, who like the nativity scenes and this year no room at the inn for that. >> brian: the people who don't want to celebrate don't want to celebrate together. >> look, there was no room for jesus in any of the inns. and there is no room in the santa monica park, apparently. so jesus is used to this. that's the good news. he's used to being shut out of the popular culture. but this judge is a clinton appointee. appointed by bill clinton and her reasoning is that look, there are other parks where this nativity scene can be put up, so it's not an undue burden on the first amendment rights of this particular group, on the free expression rights. all these people who are atheists out there, a lot of them don't buy into this. i must say. a lot of them find people like this guy's name is damon -- i keep calling him damien. damon vick is the atheist who
5:13 am
first filed this lawsuit. well, damien is not content with not believing. there he is. lovely. not just contents with not believing, he wants to make a pain in the backside of himself and annoy and enrage and trample on the rights of every other person who happens to be a christian out there on christmas time. i don't think it's good for his movement. i think people kind of just think he's a pain. i guess he consider this is a big victory. >> brian: the backlash might be more people believing in god, so damon might get this -- >> you guys should know this case is a lot like the capital cases for the death penalty where they just overwhelm the city or the state with all these lawsuits so the state just says forget it. we're not going to do this anymore. >> steve: have a great thanksgiving. >> thanks, you, too. >> brian: we have a twinkie update. >> alisyn: could there be a twinkie of hope for hostess? how a judge's orders may keep the company intact and 18,000 americans on the job.
5:14 am
>> steve: then hate those parent-teacher conferences? one city bribing parents with gift cards. is that a good message? we got tons of your e-mail. we'll read some straight ahead.
5:15 am
5:16 am
5:17 am
>> howdy, partners! come on to hostess twinkie town. there is a golden sponge cake twinkie. >> watch out! they're stealing the hostess twinkies. >> watch this. here is your reward. >> thanks! >> steve: what goes on in twinkie town? they will live to see another day perhaps. yesterday hostess and its second largest union agreed to third party talks that could prevent the loss of 18,000 jobs. a judge order the negotiations before the company can start shutting down and selling stuff off. what if the talks break down again? let's talk to peter johnson, jr. >> good morning. sometimes if you can't have a whole twinkie, then you have a half a twinkie. so if you had a choice, and i've got some here, if you couldn't have a whole twinkie, would you
5:18 am
have a half a twinkie? >> steve: it beats no twinkie, absolutely. >> it would be quite delicious. what's going on is the federal bankruptcy judge has said -- have a twinkie for you and half pour me -- has said that they have to get to the table. the unions have to negotiate about what's going on and can we save these 18,500 jobs? they say okay. offers have been made. the company wants to cut health benefits, give back on that. cut some salaries for a time. then salary increases over the five-year period. and the unions say no, we're on strike. and so now the unions are saying, no, this is about crony capitalism, this is about vulture capital capitalism. these are excellent. >> steve: they are. i saw on-line these are going for 50 bucks. peter, i was reading the daily news today, this is the same
5:19 am
union that stood in the way of stella doro, producing stuff here in new york city. now they went bankrupt. now they're making stuff out in ohio. >> there has to be a separate delivery for bread, separate delivery for things like twinkies. we understand that it's become the campaign all over again. the unions are attacking the management saying you're getting big raises. this is about your management consulting fees. this is about vulture capitalism. let this company live. the way this company will live and the 18,000 jobs will be preserved is if the unions vote, if they take a vote and say listen, we want to keep our jobs. we're making between 16 and $20 an hour. we want to continue to make that. we want to continue to earn for our family in the thanksgiving period, in the christmas period and for the next year to see if we can get this company right again. the company gave back in the past, they gave a piece of the company. they gave director positions to the unions.
5:20 am
but at the same time, it's a mutuality. it's a partnership between workers and capital to say listen, we can make it in this country. the constraints are great. the truth is, they make a couple billion dollars a year in sales and they're one of the major producers of bread and great products like dingdong, twinkies, all these things. it needs to be saved. >> steve: put it to a vote. >> it should be put to a vote. >> steve: the employees would decide if a half twinkie better than none. >> or it may be 10% less of the twinkie, which is really delicious. >> steve: all right. peter johnson, jr. this was one of your most delicious segments. >> it was important to eat this. >> steve: i get the point. >> this is an homage to america. >> steve: homage to hostess. thank you. >> that's right. >> steve: straight ahead, secretary of state hillary clinton on the way to israel right now. but colonel ollie north says it's a bad movement he's

5:23 am
5:24 am
>> alisyn: hitting the road for thanksgiving? the good news, the roads will be slightly less congested than last year. bad news? the drop in traffic is because of record high gas prices. national average is 3.41 a gallon. that's 7 cents higher than last year. thank goodness david beckham will soon have more time to make ads like this. soccer star announced his game on december 1 will be his last one with the l.a. galaxy. he has not announced what he will do next. i have some ideas. after brian. >> brian: i didn't know she was such a soccer fan. this is a fox news alert.
5:25 am
chaos in the middle east, big time. israel stepped up its offense. the secretary of state hillary clinton is scrambling over to the middle east right now to meet first with netanyahu and leaders of egypt and the palestinian authority, but not hamas. now that the u.s. will take an active role in negotiations, is this indeed a smart move? so far it's been egypt, turkey, hamas, and israel, although they don't have relations. let's bring in colonel oliver north who is happy he's got a book now out and there it is. it's called "heros proved" i'm sure it's going to be another "new york times" best seller. >> thanks so you. >> brian: first things, i know you're all over the situation with israel. you have the iron dome knocking out missiles, but still some are getting through. what is the rightful conclusion of this operation, if you're from the israeli perspective? >> the pressure needs to be brought to bear on iran. the missiles are made in iran. they are shipped to hezbollah
5:26 am
through syria and to hamas and islamic jihad through egypt. they go from iran to sudan, right down the nile to egypt and the egyptians help ship that and that's where it needs to stop. it needs to backtrack all the way to tehran. >> brian: so we don't have relations with then of the they're not at the table. how do you pressure iran? through egypt? >> all of what's happening right now in cairo, mrs. clinton will go to cairo and sit down with the turk irk foreign minister, egyptian foreign minister, who are in the hands of the muslim brotherhood and they're going to want us to put pressure on the israelis. they're going to offer to cut off parts they need to maintain their f 16s. >> brian: you really believe that will be the message from hillary clinton? >> no, no. never publicly. what's going to happen, brian, is they'll quietly deliver that message to the israeli defense forces from leon panetta's
5:27 am
defense department and that will all happen under the table. that's what's happened before. it happened with weinberger in 1982 and with eisenhower in 54. >> brian: so if this happens, because i love the president's public comments saying israel -- >> every president says that. it's in the u.n. charter. >> brian: he was the one who said go back to the '67 borrowedder in his speech! >> this is the president who has done everything he can to push the israeli noose a corner. they're now in that corner thanks to him. >> brian: how dangerous is it, if you take some of the 75,000 troops welled up on the borrowedder and go into gaza, do you think the blow back and the loss of life would be too great for the israelis to move forward? >> no. if the israelis are allowed to pursue what's necessary to defend themselves, the outside pressure needs to be brought to bear against the syrians moving the stuff to hezbollah in the north, again the egyptians and those moving it to hamas in the south. if you look what's happening in jordan today, the possibility that jordan goes upside down is very, very real.
5:28 am
>> brian: which will be scary. one of the few allies we have left. "heros proved." no one has been in the war zone over the last 12 years than oliver north, through all the great heros you interviewed before to all the things you've seen with this generation, it all goes into that book. >> that's my beat for fox news. i've kept up with heros. very few folks had a life as exciting as mine. this is a novel. if you look at the way it starts with a terrorist attack t kills americans. and administration -- an administration that deny it is and iranian nuclear weapons threat. and the kinds of chaos that we see right now in the middle east. it's all right there in the beginning of this book. i don't have the gift of prophecy. you and i know there is a way in which we can handle things the right way to keep things from coming unraveled. hopefully that's the solution in this book. my hope is the american people will look at this as a wake-up call. that's what our good friend sean hannity described it. >> brian: you come to long island tonight.
5:29 am
i feel personal responsibility for this to be successful. huntington, new york, it starts at 7:00 o'clock. you can't get a more personable guy on the planet than you. >> i love signing books with you. >> brian: thank you so much. we'll see you on radio. >> happy thanksgiving. >> brian: coming up straight ahead, your tax dollars hard at work. first, you paid for a murderer's sex change. wait until you hear what could be next. then your e-mails are pouring in on this one. come to parent-teacher night and get a gift car! is that a good lesson for the parents? the capital one cash rewards card

>> come on, boys! i'll send awe postcard! >> brian: your shot of the morning. looks like this. that movie coming to life, he floated away in a house carried by hundreds of helium balloons. >> alisyn: this is a real picture. >> brian: they took off from mexico and floated for two hours. no one told him we now have planes. >> steve: that's cool. >> brian: it's all practice for an attempt to fly across the atlantic ocean using 365 balloons to carry a boat. >> steve: that makes more sense. >> brian: this man has so much free time. he has already set a record for
5:34 am
flying the english channel. next hour, i will find out how to correctly pronounce his name. >> steve: that reminds me of the guy with a weather balloon who launched the lawn chair. remember? and the way he was going to control -- when it was time to come down, he had a bb gun. one by one, he would shoot the balloons. >> alisyn: what could go wrong with that plan? >> brian: the balloon boy, remember that. we have not follow that had story like we should have. >> steve: it didn't end well for the family. >> alisyn: all right. we keep hearing all the warnings about the fiscal cliff. but there is a hidden part that is not really mentioned and that's the tax increases that are about to take effect because of obamacare. now more. hi again, doug. >> good morning. most people's attention is focused on the first effects of the fiscal cliff if the president gets his way. taxes will go up on couples making $250,000 a year and
5:35 am
individuals making over $200,000 a year. there is a hidden part of the fiscal cliff, too that it would take effect in october of 2013 when health care exchanges have to be up and ready to go. at that time a new 3.8% tax on capital gains and dividends will be added. therethere will be an increase n medicare payroll taxes and a 2%-plus medical device excise tax. total expected revenues from those taxes, more than $318 billion over ten years. small businesses will be most adversely affected. >> there is a lot of small businesses in the country that do not file under the corporate income tax. they file under the individual income tax schedule. and so these are entrepreneurs with small businesses with a certain number of workers. now they'll be facing a 4, 10 percentage tax increase. that means they'll have less income to invest in their firm. >> for some small businesses it could be a bit of a hardship.
5:36 am
for other small businesses, they'll go on doing what they're doing. >> one indication of all the uncertainty, the "wall street journal" reported u.s. companies are scaling back investment plans at the highest rate since the recession. alisyn? >> alisyn: thanks so much for that update. >> steve: we told you that -- >> brian: two words, hobby lobby. >> steve: and one other word, sorry. the judge in the case regarding hobby lobby, that is a christian-owned family, family that is devoutly christian. the green family. they've got 13,000 employees. 41 states, 500 stores. part of the affordable care act is they've got to go -- there is mr. green. he heads it up. part of the affordable care act is if you've got a business, you got to provide birth control. this company says no. we don't believe in that, so we're not going to do that. they took the government to court and yesterday the judge, u.s. district judge joe hedon said sorry, that only applies to
5:37 am
religious organization. hobby lobby, not a religious organization. >> alisyn: right. so you had a lot of thoughts about this. kevin tweeted us, saying it's ridiculous that government requires any private company to offer certain benefits to its employees. >> brian: dick says this: do we have another company that might be forced into creating part-time jobs from full time workers? there we go. >> steve: we should point out the green family does intend to appeal. it's not over for them. >> alisyn: they employ 13,000 employees in 41 states. so it's a big company. >> brian: that's a lot of hobby ies. >> alisyn: the f.b.i. and nypd are zeroing in on this man who they believe could have some clues about the case of this serial killer in new york. he's been identified as a key person of interest after surveillance video showed him at two of the three crime scenes. police believe the suspect has a fascination with numerology. they believe that's factored into his motivation to murder
5:38 am
three people. apparently the address where each person was killed does include the number 8. >> steve: or that could be a coincidence. your tax dollars hard at work? first people in massachusetts paid for that convicted murderer's sex change. now they might be forced to foot the bill for hair removal treatment. robert, who is now referred to as michelle, had several electrolysis sessions in 2008. before the state's department of corrections stopped him. her lawyer heading to court today to argue the electrolysis is necessary. >> brian: okay. i'll follow that up with this. it's hard enough getting kids to go to school and in chicago, apparently the same goes for the parents. there are reports so few are showing up for parent-teacher conferences, the city is considering bribing them. those who show up would get a $25 gift card to walgreen's. we asked you what you thought. here is what you said. here is allison.
5:39 am
>> alisyn: it's just another freebie. where is personal responsibility? kathy from michigan says from a 30 year retired teacher, yes, it's worth a try. if the parents are involved, the chances of success are much greater for children. parents show that. >> brian: if you noticed, they sounded exactly alike. >> steve: they did. just like ali. let's look at the weather map and here is alisyn to tell us where it's raining. >> alisyn: okay. it looks like it's raining over chicago headed toward new york, am i right? >> steve: that's pretty much it. see, anybody can do the weather. very nicely done. >> brian: 20 minutes before we're through. next up, super model katie upton -- just landed a super bowl commercial for mercedes benz. there is a slight problem. she can't drive anything. >> steve: if the mayan calendar is correct, in exactly 31 days, the world will end. so why is he black berrying --

5:44 am
play herself and probably walk like that. >> alisyn: all right. december 21, 2012, that's the day the mayan calendar ends. what some say will be the end of civilization as we know it. should we believe the hype? >> brian: will cable tv survive? fox news special will investigate and explore the mystery of maya. >> when you have any kind of mystery, any kind of uncertainty, it can bring people out of the woodwork, so to speak. we've seen that with the mayan, right? >> very much so. >> it's sort of a natural thing. you can trace that sort of behavior all through history. change of the last 1,000 a.d. in europe, there was a lot of people thought it was the end. >> steve: my oh, mian. bill hemmer will be hosting the special and he joins us live right now. where did this come from? >> you know what i find fascinating about this? the maya people lived in the jungles of what is mexico now.
5:45 am
5,000 years ago! they put together a calendar and in one month, that calendar ends. so the question then becomes, what happens the day after? that's what this special is all about. >> alisyn: what did you find out? is the world ending? >> that's the tease. i will tell you that we do reach a conclusion in this special. but i really don't want to give it away just yet. but if went to google and put in 20-21. 2012, how many hits to you get? >> 2 million hits. which tells you how much interest is in the whole idea. >> brian: how much more popular google is than bing. even today. let's talk about, where did you send warren green? >> here is what we did, we went to not just the maya civilization where you saw adam how'ser there in southern mexico. but lorn green went to israel, where armageddon is talked about in the book of revelations. amy kellogg went to stonehenge west of london. there are doomsday scenarios
5:46 am
that have been set up and talked about among various civilizations since the beginning of time. up until the end of time. so we explored at least three of the more significant ones. >> steve: and the mayan people, how did they come up with that number? was it just the fact that it's 12-21-2012? >> what they worked on was the movement of the sun and how it aligns itself every 365 days on the winter solstice. that's what they based everything on. it's a fascinating theory. the question is, what happens to your plans on december 22? >> alisyn: i don't know. what does? >> you got all the presents under the christmas tree? is it even significant? we look at all that and the doomsday scenario. >> steve: very nice. stay right here for just a moment. because we want to know what's on your program coming up in 14 minutes. >> brian: america's news room. >> i've got my partner, her name is martha mccallum. >> brian: where is she?
5:47 am
>> this is usually the part of the day where either she or i would pop up. >> steve: you're already here. >> at the moment, she's m.i.a. big news out of israel. you've been watching the news about hillary clinton arriving there. there is an alert that came out 15 minutes ago that said president morsi of egypt said both sides will be satisfied and they reached a deal. you look at the story right now, you think about what netanyahu did, netanyahu challenged five different components of the middle east peace policy. what did he do? he challenged morsi to step up. and close the gaza strip and take a stand. they got the to test out their iron dome system that worked fabulously and they had hamas go on record with the iranian rockets that they're now in possession of. >> steve: plus hillary clinton to the region directly from cambodia. all right. we'll be watching you. >> i hope you guys get a drum stick. >> brian: happy thanksgiving.
